Adult and Community Learning 2021-2022

We are pleased, once again, to be part of Herefordshire Council’s Adult & Community Learning provision, running a range of courses and opportunities for adults with a learning disability to help them develop skills for independent living, engage more fully in their local community, and improve their quality of life.

The Building a Story programme focuses on improving teamwork, co-operation, listening, concentration and memory, decision making and effective communication.

Lastly, we are running some courses aimed at providing access to new opportunities, helping to reduce isolation. The Volunteering courses will support learners with disabilities and/or mental health issues to gain the skills and confidence to then move into a volunteering role.

For further information, please contact Angela at angela.ayliffe@echoherefordshire.co.uk

We are very grateful to the Education & Skills Funding Agency and to the European Social Fund for funding this provision.

Group learning, peer support and the development of practical skills are central to the majority of our courses. Because of this, the abilities of the learners who access our courses, plus the lack of technical support and equipment our learners have at home, we are unfortunately unable to offer any of our courses in the form of remote learning.
